Penshoppe international stars Mario Maurer and Baifern Pimchanok invade Cebu + Ticket Giveaway

Penshoppe

 

Global fashion brand Penshoppe has changed the endorsement game in the country by including international celebrities among its growing list of brand ambassadors. Among these international stars are Thai superstars Mario Maurer and Baifern Pimchanok who first became popular after starring in the 2010 sleeper hit First Love (Crazy Little Thing Called Love). Much to the delight of their Filipino fans, Penshoppe brought Mario and Baifern to Manila last year for their first ever joint Fan Conference which, based on the huge turnout, was a massive success.   This year, Cebuano fans of both international celebrities will no longer have to feel left out as Penshoppe is bringing them to Cebu for the very first time.  Mario and Baifern will be headlining Penshoppe’s first-ever Cebu Fan Conference on August 17 (Sunday), 5PM at The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu.   The young, in demand celebrities became wildly popular in the country when local network ABS-CBN received rights to broadcast their film First Love, wisely opting to ‘Tagalize’ it as it aired the following year. It was their strong Filipino fan base and equally strong sense of style that gained them admittance in Penshoppe’s exclusive roster of international endorsers. Filipinos are no strangers to Mario Maurer. Mario won Best Actor in the 2008 Cinemanila International Film Festival for his break out role in the critically acclaimed drama, The Love of Siam and starred opposite Filipina actress Erich Gonzales in the romantic film Suddenly It’s Magic. In 2013, Mario starred in the hit Thai horror comedy Pee Mak. Pee Mak has earned more than 1 billion baht ($33 million) in revenue worldwide (mostly in Asia), and is currently the highest grossing Thai film and one of Asia’s highest grossing films of all time. The film has been screened in Indonesia, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Cambodia, Australia, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines, China, South Korea and the United States.   His strikingly boyish good looks, and cool, free-spirited style clicked with Penshoppe, and he was officially launched as the brand’s endorser in 2011, even walking the runways for the brand’s show at Philippine Fashion Week during the same year. Baifern, on the other hand, is currently a student at the Srinakharinwirot University. This gorgeous ingénue is a model and actress whose flirty and feminine fashion (though she can pull off sexy quite well too) also caught the eye of the local retail powerhouse, becoming its muse in 2012.   After her turn as Nam in First Love (A Little Thing Called Love), she starred in several Thai films, and played a guest role in Mario’s first Filipino movie Suddenly It’s Magic. She has also been featured in a number of music videos and advertisements in her native country. Get schooled in the art of cool with Mario Maurer & Baifern Pimchanok. Mario and Baifern for #Penshoppe‘s newest campaign #TheAfterClass! While the event is open to everyone, fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with Mario and Baifern through a special Penshoppe promo. From August 8-10, customers can get a free Penshoppe FanCon 2014 entry pass with any purchase inclusive of a pair of Penshoppe pants or jeans. The first 100 people to get entry passes and present their Penshoppe Card will also get an exclusive pass with a meet and greet pass for a group photo with Mario and Baifern. For more details, log on to http://bit.ly/penshoppefancon2014.   Penshoppe has over 300 branches in the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Saudi Arabia, and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Visit the official Penshoppe website at http://www.penshoppe.com or follow them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/penshoppeofficial, Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/penshoppe and Instagram: penshoppe_official.  

You can also be 1 of 10 the lucky winners to win  an exclusive pass to Penshoppe FanCon 2014  by joining our blog giveaway! To qualify for the electronic raffle, just do the following:

The raffle will be done electronically and will end on August 11, 2014,  12:00AM.  Winners can claim their passes at Penshoppe in Ayala  Center Cebu from August 13 to 16, 2014. (Winners need to provide their real names and mobile numbers. Identification Card is required in claiming their ticket.)

Born Peter Gene Hernandez, Bruno Mars grew up in a musical family. His father, Peter Hernandez, was a Latin percussionist while his Filipino mother, Bernadette “Bernie” San Pedro Baluyot, was a singer in Hawaii. Mars wrote and performed music at a very young age and was exposed to a diverse mix of reggae, rock, hip hop and R&B music. He had his share of hurdles early on in his career, but his persistence to succeed and remarkable gift in music helped catapult him to worldwide fame.  It was only a matter of time before he captured the world’s attention  after helping popularize hits like “Nothin on You” by B.o.B, and “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy.

It is an experience that we would love to share with every Filipino, especially Cebuanos who are inherently music-lovers,” shared Bobby Simborio, PR and CSR Manager for Max’s Group of Companies.

Bruno Mars is one of the most respected and in-demand artists today. He has sold over 115 million records all over the world  as a singer, producer and songwriter. A recipient of a number of prestigious awards, Mars has also catalogued 22 Billboard “Hot 100” hits.

The Julie’s Chief Baker

THE JULIE’S CHIEF BAKER STUDENTS EDITION REALITY BAKING COMPETITION

 

Julies Chief Baker copy

Julie’s Bakeshop brings you Julie’s Chief Baker Students Edition, a reality TV show featuring student bakers from various culinary schools in Cebu offering baking classes.  The Premier Season featuring 13 full episodes will air this February 2014 in the cities of Cebu, Dumaguete, Davao and General Santos on SkyCable.  The show aims to highlight the skills, creativity and ingenuity of the student bakers in coming up with new recipes, and their ability to adapt with their fellow student bakers and to the competition environment.  It also allows them the opportunity to learn from kitchen veterans and experience the thrill and excitement of being on a competitive reality TV show.

 

The Julie’s Chief Baker Show Students Edition is a first for the baking scene not just in Cebu but in the country.  It aims to generate awareness for the brand among a younger and more dynamic market.  Julie’s has long been a household name among homemakers since its inception over 30 years ago; now, it strives to take a foothold of the younger generation, bringing the brand closer to the student populace and ultimately bringing Julie’s breads top of mind when students consider a healthy snack, or “baon.”

 

Hosted by veteran radio personality, DJ JiggyCerna, the Julie’s Chief Baker show is sure to keep audiences glued as the kneading and baking pave the way for personalities to arise in the kitchen as the competition heats up.

 

The thrill then goes from the kitchen to the judging table where guest judges from Cebu’s culinary scene and social circles bring their appetites and discerning palates to the Chief Baker set and give their honest and colorful opinions to the aspiring bakers.  Weekly eliminations will give the competing teams a reason to always be a cut above the rest.

 

Weekly challenges include, but are not limited to the following recipes: breads with filling, healthy breads, fried breads, meat-filled breads, steamed breads, etc.  Of course, surprise ingredients can come in anytime during the season.

 

 

 

Apart from being awardedas the first Julie’s Chief Baker Students Edition winner, the winning school will be awarded a kitchen showcase valued at P 200,000.00.  The winning team will receive P60,000.00 and the coach receives P 20, 000.00.  All participants will alsoreceive gift packs and giveaways from Julie’s Bakeshop and its partners.

 

What’s more, those watching at home also get a chance to participate in the Home Partners Promo. For every P50.00 single purchase of Julie’s bread and Coke or Selecta products, a Home Partner is entitled to a raffle coupon. Simply complete the contact details and answer the “Home Partner Question of the Week” for a chance to be one of 5 lucky winners of P15,000.00 in cash in 2 raffle draws.

 

The participating schools also have a chance at an additional kitchen showcase worth P100,000.00. Students simply need to complete a student’s reward card that requires an accumulated P50.00 worth of Julie’s breads and Coke or Selecta products.  The school with the most number of completed student reward cards wins P100,000.00 worth of kitchen equipment for their HRM facilities; and students who participate in the promo also have a chance to be one of 10 winners of P10,000 cash plus a tablet.

 

The 13 competing schools vying for the Julie’s Chief Baker title are: Asian College of Technology, Benedicto College, Cebu Eastern College, Cebu Institute of Technology University, Cebu Mary Immaculate College Inc., Cebu Technological University Danao and San Francisco,Camotes, International School of Hotel and Restaurant Management, Mandaue City College, St. Cecilia’s College, University of Cebu Lapu-LapuMandaue, University of Cebu METC SEACAST, andUniversity of Southern Philippines Foundation.

My ilaputi’s Most Memorable

Despite the rapid and fast changing metroplotitan Cebu, there are a few things that is hard to forget in this hypersonic city. For almost a decade, I have made fond memories with my friends and family at a very nostalgic Cebuano spot, ilaputi. Way back in 2002, my classmates and I would hang out at their first outlet in Talamban and order a rice bowl with two burger patties topped with gravy with a cold refreshing chiller. I can remember staring at the ceiling covered with paper egg trays painted in black after a full meal. hahaha.

But of all the the fond memories I have at ilaputi,  most memorable would be a dinner with fellow iLearners after an outreach program in Lunas, a remote mountain baranggay in the city of Carcar.

Doyzkie and Edd

 Together with my fellow iLearners, we had prepared their classrooms  for the opening of the school year though painting their walls and rehabilitating their library.

After a long day, it was a long drive back to the city and we all went in unison to dine in at ilaputi. (Note: the pictures here are taken way back 2009. ilaputi has a new contemporary look with more space) It might sound cheesy and all, but for real, it was indeed the most doozie dinner at ilaputi. We all had ilaputi‘s signature 22 ounce chill drinks with each of our favorite ilaputi dish.

My dinner and my fave ilaputi dish, Saigon Adobo- sorry for the pic quality. used my phone to take the pic. 🙂

During our dinner we talked about how tiring the Paint thy Future program was, but it was all worth it. At ilaputi, its not just about the great food or drinks that are notable but the reminiscence as well that we share with our friends and family.

Share your most memorable ilaputi experience and stand a chance to win a Golden Pass for a week long pig gin out at ilaputi!

ilaputi

If you’re not from Cebu or can’t speak or understand the city’s vernacular(which is bisaya/cebuano) then you’d be clueless what “ilaputi” means. It simply means “sa kanila Puti” in Tagalog or “there at Puti’s” in English. “Puti”  is Jan Rodiguez‘s nickname, the owner of ilaputi and the creator of the entire line up of ilaputi‘s dishes and drinks.

ilaputi

Entering ilaputi you would notice their cozy ambiance with contemporary details and interiors. ilaputi offers casual gourmet dishes which are only prepared once ordered to give each customers fresh and quality dishes. Another thing that you’d notice when dining or chilling at ilaputi is their great line up of songs on their playlist.
